Each Kalahari room comes with 4 water park passes**, so bring your family with you. Your family can go to the water park (and other features) and you can go to MQTC - it's a win-win!!

* Kalahari only guarantees room availability and price until August 26th, 2017. After this time, MQTC rooms are open to the general public for booking. Hence, do not delay in making your hotel reservation.

** Make sure when you book your hotel room that you state how many people will be staying in your room, as you only get the number of water park passes that are listed on your hotel reservation even though you are entitled to receive 4 free waterpark passes.

Note: Ask for a room in the Sands section of Kalahari, as it is close to the convention center.

Warning: The Desert room is a long walk to the convention center.
